Shola Shoretire became the youngest player to appear for Manchester United in a European game and the youngster was extremely delighted.
Shoretire was handed minutes as Manchester United eased into the last-16 of the Europa League after a goalless draw at Old Trafford against Real Sociedad.
Man United had won the first-leg in style, defeating Sociedad 4-0 at the Allianz Stadium.
The Forward came on as replacement for Greenwood in the 76th minute and went on to write his name in history of the club.
After the game he tweeted:
What a feeling to make my European debut! To become United’s youngest ever player in Europe is an incredible honour and a proud moment for me and my family! On to the next round
